Recent Tasting Notes
I already made my notes on this one a few times, This one actually replaced one of my favs for iced Oolong to keep in the fridge, I made this one just like I do Lance’s iced teas only in a smaller pitcher just for me and with not as much sweetener. I do enjoy slightly sweetened iced tea tho but then again I am a southern and thats what we do down here lol, Anyways I’m really surprised that Lance don’t care for this one because it is a really good tea with nice chocolate tones when iced (I think I mention “chocolate” like aroma in this one but didn’t mention chocolate like flavors) but lance just don’t care for Oolong which is a shame to me ;) I’m at dialysis with him today and I filled up a small water bottle of this to bring with me it is drank up and now I want more lol I like Oolongs like this with “darker” tones.
This tea smells as good as it tastes, almost almost smells like a chocolate bar laying on fresh cut grass lol weird i know but very good. Many steeps from this one too pending on how ya do it, i do short steeps from the gaiwan at least 8 times before it even starts to fade and then it still very good until about the 12th steep. I bump the rating on this one up a little bit :)
Hello Steepster :)
This is an Oolong that I could drink often, it is deliciously bold to me with even a little earthyness to it, The Aroma is wow so good in both the steeped leaves and the dry leaves you can almost taste it when you smell the dry leaves. Super good. read my review on the site here http://siam-tee.de/product_reviews_info.php?products_id=31&reviews_id=23
Short infusions in the gaiwan made several cups
Oolong teas are like cousins. They may have the same name but each offers a different pleasure. The taste can range from clear, bright and flowery to heavy and charcoal-flavored depending upon their origin and processing. Oolong teas are withered in the sun, partially fermented, and sold as loose leaves or curled and rolled into small balls called “gunpowder.” The degree of fermentation varies between 8% and 85% which gives “Formosa oolong teas” a large range of aromatic varieties from a sweet and fruity honey aroma to a green / fresh bouquet flavor. Oolong #17 from Siamteas.com is light, fragrant yet very satisfying. You might enjoy it before meditation for clarity of vision while reducing stress, a cool fresh evening on a high mountain.
This clear, pale oolong is a new taste experience for me–delightfully light, fresh, flowery, and uplifting, not my usual bitter and bracing Twinings gunpowder green tea I normally use to jolt myself awake each morning. This #17 oolong from the mountains of northern Thailand is more like a morning walk through a spring garden.
I’m glad to have gotten some more Shan Tee,Pending on how ya steep this one you can enjoy a few different flavor profiles, short steeps is more greenish kinda floral goodness and longer steeps gives ya more of a raw puerh kinda oolongish yummyness, I do so enjoy this tea. All the teas that i’ve had from Siam Tee Shop have been very nice i’m surprised more folks on here haven’t had any to review on here, if you enjoy raw puerhs, green teas or oolongs you should for sure try this one. also Please read about Project Shan Tee here http://siamteas.com/?page_id=501 :)
